Both the men were business people and they left home very early and returned very late in the night. Both these families were vegetarians. The friendship between wives had developed to such warm depths that almost every day we used to get one dish of food cooked by them. I met the men only on Sundays and, that too in the garden area of the building.
During the first few months, we made it a habit to visit our friends in Bandra on Friday and Saturday nights.
On some Friday evenings, we had company; five to six of the Sri Lankans studying for the second Mates and my batch mates visited us at Andheri. My wife being the only female did not have a problem cooking because many of the younger students took turns and helped her in the kitchen.
They had very late dinner and returned to their boarding houses, in Bombay Central and in Chembur.
It was good company, all the way.
